What has recently been described as "a radical revision of all aspects of psychoanalytic thought" has been taking place within contemporary psychoanalysis. At the same time, significant changes have been occurring within integral psychology. This presentation examines some of the most significant recent changes within both traditions, and explores how the relationship between contemporary psychoanalysis and integral psychology is becoming complementary rather than adversarial.
